Has anybody managed this? I need to lose a few stone but using scales is not an option. I always get off to a good start, but lose motivation quickly - it's hard to see the little day to day changes and it's a few weeks before you drop a dress size! Anybody in the same boat?
Yes me. I just know what I'm eating. Therefore I must be on track. Last years wedding dress is not a comfortable fit so when it is I know I have lost weight. Then I'll start with my next tightest dress ;-)
My goal is cousins wedding in may and we have a holiday before that so need to do something now. Nearly two weeks in and definitely feel less bloated. I'm doing intermittent fasting and the no s diet.
When I started loosing weight I wasn't using scales and needed motivation so I went with buying a pair of trousers a size smaller than currently and would try them on every week to see how they were fitting. It was wonderful for them to go from being too tight, to a bit snug to fits nicely over time.
Clothes are good, but take a while! Photos are also really helpful, but again found it took a few months really before I could see a big difference myself. Measurements helped me the most I think. I'm managing the scales again now and not freaking out, but had to get to the point where the number would be acceptable to use it! I think clothes overall were the biggest tip-off - old stuff that had been tight. My own stuff didn't seem to look too big until now.
